Mass Media, Ethics, and Current Codes
This is a 5 page paper discussing a specific mass media incident that posed an ethical dilemma and some examples of codes of ethics within media. Editors and executive officers in charge of mass media operations have formatted over 33 known codes of ethics and values in the media. Many of the codes of ethics deal with public relations and moral dilemmas, conflict of interest issues, timeless values, new technology, sources and reporters, editorial independence and diversity issues among other areas of concern. Nevertheless, cases which test the codes of media ethics continue to be an issue in the public and journalist world.

Enron and Ethics of the Media
7 pages in length. The Enron debacle clearly illustrates how establishing and maintaining corporate ethics is the cornerstone to continued success, both on a personal and professional level. Constant nurturing of moral judgment and a specific code of ethics are necessary in order to perpetuate the positive image required to uphold such policy. The five primary elements of such nurturing include having a clear and concise forthrightness, which is substantiated by culture; appropriate and applicable conformity with regard to difficult situations; managerial involvement and awareness on ethics issues; a nurturing program that is wholeheartedly supported by top management; and staff involvement. These concepts, which are both interrelated and individual at the same time, represent a complete quest toward ethical decision-making. Bibliography lists 6 sources.
